and groups that say they're from a two-step solution. apec. everything is for a two-state solution. there's no constituency for an actual two-state solution. >> nsa not true. there's a constituency for it and there continues to be among both israelis and palestinians, they don't see their own government institutions or frankly our government institutions being able to get there. so if you want to fix it, what you have to do is deal with the legitimacy problem and the institution instead of saying let's go to final status negotiations tomorrow. >> there are also international efforts over the years. not just the idea that the u.s. is number one i think is the wrong approach with all due respect. because i think part of the problem of the states foreign policy. should be first among many. but if you don't build regional power and international security institutions it's very difficult to build a more peaceful world. there have been efforts like the quartet. the united states is not the only one who should be playing a role in the region. we're forgetting another thing. the tragedy is

here in america. they have their politics there. and apec may rule the street in congress -- >> because of pro israel lobby. >> and deny palestinian aid if, in fact, they declare independence and statehood but the fact is, they have to be concerned with what is important to them and that is their credibility and their legitimacy as a governing authority. if we have a situation where hamas has won a victory and that's how it will be perceived and abu mason and the palestinian authority have been humiliated an that's how it will be perceived that is not a recipe for success. the congress be dammed in this context. palestinians have to do what they think is best for them and the u.s. should back them up and support them and the rest will take care of itself. aid will be forthcoming for palestinians i believe from the arab side, but we cannot allow this moment to pass without the palestinian authority being somehow rehabilitated so it become an equal partner. >> we have to leave it there for now. thank you both very much. >>> we'll continue to follow the breaking developments

security. apec provides a forum to deal economic matters, but there is virtually no venue to consult on political issues. the east asia summit can be that forum. we took a look at it. it required a yearly commitment of quite a bit of the president's time to travel to asia for this. as you can imagine, when you're talking about the president's time, there is a debate about whether this is worth the time. we reached the decision in this way. you are either all in or you're not with respect to the strategy. the president, as he said, is all in. you can either look at these institutions and wait for them to protect themselves, or you can participate on the ground and held these institutions to protect themselves and achieve the kind of goals that we as a nation hope will happen. but that was the president's goal. he has a determination to go in, roll up our sleeves and participate on the ground level, to build up the institution in a way that it can be the premier forum in the region for dealing with security and political issues. i think we are on the road to doing that, frankly, and we

-- apec and we worked on the presidential level. we did not battle and to show the importance of the region in economics and regional cooperation, but i figured that if he had an aipac meeting every which we word, that meant the president had to go to asia every year. secretary of state and treasury have to go. also figured regional security architects the arsenal regional phone, we brought in china, india and russia. again, secretary of state would have to go two or three times a year. we also articulate we would maintain our force levels. we got off to a good start. but i can only say that we partially succeeded in elevating the importance of asia. partly because even i was at the time in his and other economies was coming, was not crystal-clear as it is today. and partly because secretary and the president kept getting dragged akin to other issues. you asked about the presence the. he thought the issue was important. he realized the importance of trade and so on. the first couple years of his initiation of clinton focus on the domestic economy which by the what was the most single
